Is 40 The New 30? ft. Lindsay
It’s often said these days that 40 is the new 30; and women are proving this true by doing all the things they did in their third decade, including getting pregnant. Planned pregnancies among 40-year-olds are more prevalent than ever and women are proud of this! Reasons they give for their choice are that they are more mature, more patient, have more stable relationships and are better off financially.
Studies suggest that children of older moms are more likely to be better behaved, well socialized, and emotionally healthy. However, conception at age 40 is much more difficult and miscarriages much more common. Today Lindsay is going to tell us what it is like going through fertility treatment in your 40s.
Men Suffer Too! ft. John
Fertility is one medical field that has always focused on the experiences and needs of women. After all, women bear all the physical and emotional pain of treatments. Yet there is a growing awareness that men suffer from the emotional ups and downs of infertility treatments too. While men may be shelling out thousands of dollars for fertility treatments and taking time off of work for appointments, it’s easy for men to be forgotten or minimized in the process.
In this episode we are going to see the emotional side of fertility treatment through the eyes of a man.

How can a woman even get there and to what extent would a woman go to achieve that dream? Today’s guest, Heather, single mother of two, is going to answer all of those questions.
How COVID-19 is Affecting the Mental Health of Infertility Patients ft. Jen Marsh
On March 17th, 2020, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine recommended immediate suspension of all in-person fertility treatments throughout the U.S. due to the COVID pandemic. This had devastating effects on the mental health of thousands of fertility patients across the country. Since March, the recommendations have been updated several times and patients are now able to resume treatment but in a very different manner. In this first episode of 'Everybody's Getting Pregnant But Me!' Jen Marsh, a licensed clinical psychologist, specializing in the treatment of infertility patients, will discuss how the COVID pandemic has affected the mental health of infertility patients.
